Praise with joy
Tune: Praise my soul
Metre: 8787 447

 

Praise with joy the worldís Creator,
God of justice, love and peace,
Source and end of human knowledge,
Force of greatness without cease.
Celebrate the Makerís glory -
Power to rescue and release.

 

Praise the Son who feeds the hungry,
Frees the captive, finds the lost,
Heals the sick, upsets religion,
Fearless both of state and cost.
Celebrate Christís constant presence -
Friend and Stranger, Guest and Host.

 

Praise the Spirit sent among us,
Liberating truth from pride,
Forging bonds where race or gender,
Age or nation dare divide.
Celebrate the Spiritís treasure -
Foolishness none dare deride.

 

Praise the Maker, Son and Spirit,
One God in community,
Calling Christians to embody
Oneness and diversity.
Thus the world shall yet believe, when
Shown Christís vibrant unity.
